Is People’s Justice a Law Firm?

No – People’s Justice is not a law firm, nor do we provide legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. We connect potential claimants with law firms and other third parties (who may connect you to law firms) to help people like you seek the justice they deserve.

Does It Cost Me Anything To Use This Service?

No – At People’s Justice, we partner with firms that only receive payment upon a successful settlement. They handle the complexities and costs, so you don’t have to, and their success is directly tied to yours.

Why Am I Being Asked To Answer Questions?

Questions asked throughout our service help determine if you or another may qualify for compensation in each respective case. In some instances, questions may be required by certain law firms to determine if they are able or wish to represent you. It is important to answer ALL the questions truthfully and to the best of your knowledge. Please know the answers you submit will be verified by a law firm or other third party. The contact information you provide is needed for the introduction call/email/text message, if qualified, and to collect any additional information required for your potential case.

Do I Need To Pay The Law Firm Upfront To Represent Me If I Qualify?

No, you do not need to pay the law firm upfront. If you qualify, most law firms represent you on a contingency basis. This means that the law firm charges no legal fees to you, their client, until they recover monetary damages through jury verdict, settlement, or other means. If no monetary damages are recovered in the case, then you would not owe any attorney fees. The percentage of the monetary damages you pay the firm in legal fees when a case is resolved varies by jurisdiction. This percentage should be stated in a written contingency agreement at the beginning of your representation.

Do I Need To Sign A Retainer Agreement & HIPAA Release Form(s) to Use This Service?

Yes – People’s Justice may require you to sign a variety of legally binding documents to move forward with our free service. A Retainer Agreement outlines the terms between a potential client and the law firm as one moves forward with a case. HIPAA Release Forms allow the law firm handling a client’s case to obtain and verify medical records on one’s behalf as one moves forward with a case. Please read each document carefully and consult with an attorney in the relevant jurisdiction if you have questions.

Once I Have Signed A Retainer Agreement, Can I Change My Law Firm?

Yes – you may notify your legal representation that you no longer wish to retain their services and terminate your lawyer-client engagement. Please refer to your Retainer Agreement for further details and any implications, if and when applicable.
